Keefe Law Firm’s product liability team recently recovered over $5,000,000 on behalf of his clients who suffered from a recalled hip implant known as the Depuy ASR. These implants, composed of metal-on-metal articulating surfaces, were thought to provide greater wear resistance and hence greater longevity. Unfortunately, these devices actually wore out faster than previous iterations of the product, causing them to fail at an accelerated rate. These cases were consolidated in several courts, including the State Court of New Jersey, where KB was appointed co-lead counsel on behalf of all plaintiffs with Depuy ASR cases filed in New Jersey.
